The Way Home: Current Exhibition

Here is the window display inviting passers-by to check out a diverse sampling of my most recent mixed media works and 2 sequences of daily paintings at Mari-Lin Cafecreacions, a new bar/café/creative space appointed with retro furnishings.
On the restaurant level are several recent pieces seen in the Artefacto show just last month.
Downstairs is a charming gallery space with low ceilings perfectly suited to house the 8 X 8 inch daily painting series Continuum created in summer 2009, and Half-Time Home, winter 2010.

We opened the show on Tuesday October 19. It will be up into the first week of November.

Arrival, Wedding Gift Commission

This is a recently completed piece called Arrival. It was created as a wedding gift for a pilot and his new bride. He proposed on the steps of the Old City Hall in Salem, Massachusetts. I was provided an historic map of the city, a link to their wedding registry for color and design ideas, and a look at the wedding invitations. Then I was set free. I love this kind of commission.

Thank you to Wendy for the opportunity. And best wishes to the new couple!
